Kings to host ‘Social Media Night’ with emoji-covered warmups
The Sacramento Kings will host “Social Media Night” at Sleep Train Arena on Wednesday when they play the Washington Wizards, and will don the league’s first ever emoji shooting shirts as they prepare for action.
The team’s roster has been transformed into emojis, and printed on a shirt for all its players to wear:
They’ll also give out DeMarcus Cousins’s emoji from the All-Star Game on a stick to the first 5,000 fans to arrive:
You will also be able to chat with Doug Christie on Facebook and Peja Stojakovic on Reddit before the game.
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen a team attempt emoji gear, though it’s probably the first attempt that hasn’t burned our eyebrows off.
The Kings’ social media department stays winning.
